At this point I have a stash of many sizes. Not so many small ones, because little items often end up in stockings.
This kind of enclosure (frog? Chinese button?) is really classy looking and so easy to attach with glue. I utility quilted each little snowflake dot on this bag.
This is the bag I just finished yesterday, again quilting just the snowflake dots. I made little tiny crosses with white perle cotton thread.
When I first started out I was cautious with what fabric I used for the inside. Just trying to use up stash didn't work well for me. It has to "go" or else it draws attention to itself. Anyway, I now often use a bright contrasting fabric:
I have some poly-fil polyester batting that I've been using up. The real advantage is that it doesn't need any quilting to hold its shape, so you can make the bags faster. I think this little bag actually looks kinda classy. It has bright red fabric inside.
Oh my oh my, bright gorgeous sunshine out there in the world. Who cares that it's only 42 degrees (not celsius of course!). I'm actually going to be smart and wear a coat out there instead of the thin sweater I've been using recently.
